The San Pedro Smile Clinic was back on the island providing dental care to the children of San Pedro. The volunteers held clinic at the Holy Cross Anglican School from Monday February 28th through Wednesday, March 2nd 2011. This time around volunteer dentist, Dr. Tom Anderson and his daughter Megan Anderson from Michigan, provided services to the children of the island.
The smile clinic continues to brightening smiles and remedying cavities to children on the island.
While the Clinic is based out of Holy Cross, all the children of San Pedro are invited and welcomed to utilize the services of the Clinic. Services provided include extractions, fillings and cleaning among other dental services. Assisting the Dentists at the Smile Clinic are four volunteers currently at the Holy Cross School from Hanover College in Indiana.
The San Pedro Smile Clinic takes this opportunity to once again thank everyone that has contributed to the continued success of the Smile Clinic. The next clinic is scheduled for March 14th – 15th 2011.

San Pedro Smile Center at the Poly Clinic

The San Pedro Smile Center is back in San Pedro, this time; at the San Pedro Poly Clinic II (SPPC). This was done in an effort to make the services offered more accessible to the students at the San Pedro RC School; a school, where the students are probably even more in need of the dental services than others.

Retired Medical practitioners, Dr. Louis Lam (Minnesota) and Dr. Jim Snyder (Iowa); from the United States were at the SPPC II for four days; Monday April 4th through Thursday April 7th. Both doctors are retired. Dr. Louis was a practicing dentist for over 26 years while Dr. Jim has been practicing since 1976. Along with the two doctors was Mr. Dwayne Gemelke, also retired, who is assisting the dentists.

While at the poly clinic, the dentists provided services such as cavity filling, extractions and root canal treatments to save teeth. They were also actively teaching the patients Oral Hygiene as well as the importance of preventative care.

Dr. Lam informed The San Pedro Sun that while most of the supplies brought down have been purchased through donations, visiting practitioners are responsible for their own airfare and hotel accommodations. However, the love of their profession and the very needed medical services that they are able to provide all makes it worth the while.

Organizers would like to extend a big thank you to Maya Island Air and the Conch Shell hotel for all their support. The general public is informed that Dr. Cima offers dental services at the San Pedro Poly Clinic II Monday through Friday 8-5 to all residents of San Pedro, at no cost other than a small donation to the Poly Clinic if affordable.
